HAS RENO’S TIME COME?

 Returns to Reno copyHas Reno’s time come?

 

By Mario Murillo

There have been many strange predictions about Reno.  Many of them speak of a transformation—a transformation so shocking it will change Reno’s reputation to the entire world.

When I ask if this is Reno’s time…do I mean an economic boom?   Actually I mean something much, much greater.  No one is saying more money wouldn’t help—but if all we have to look forward to is an influx of cash—Reno has little to look forward to.

Money will not take away hatred—it will finance it.  Money will not suddenly make politicians stop acting crude and rude.  Money in the hands of decent people will not stop it from getting in the hands of criminals.  Money is not going to magically heal the addictions and perversions that are degrading our culture.  Americans are miserable for reasons that go way deeper than money.  They need a miracle in their soul.

The strange predictions I mentioned point to something infinitely beyond money.   Diverse voices have prophesied that Reno would be ground zero of a moral and spiritual renaissance—an awakening.

Sparks 12

Many people believe it may have begun several weeks ago when hundreds of people met at Spirit Filled Church in Sparks.   But hundreds coming to a church is not a great revival.   Even the fact that many claimed to be healed of serious disease does not mean it is a moral awakening.

But here are the things that make me believe something has started:

-People are filled with an intense expectancy.  You walk in and you get a crackling electric feeling that something big will happen at any moment.

-The excitement keeps growing and the way people keep bringing family and friends means this is no fluke.   A contagious thing is happening…and it is not the result of hard sell guilt or marketing.   It is described in the following verses: Mark 6: 54 “And when they came out of the boat, immediately the people recognized Him, 55 ran through that whole surrounding region, and began to carry about on beds those who were sick to wherever they heard He was. 56 Wherever He entered, into villages, cities, or the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they might just touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched Him were made well.”  They took their sick loved ones to where they heard Jesus was.  That is exactly what happened in Sparks.  They are coming because they believe that Jesus is present.

Sparks 5

-Doubters come away convinced.  The impact on the unchurched tells you that this is beyond a good meeting.   They come thinking “this is fake” and they leave knowing they will never be the same.  Pictured above is a woman who was enveloped in joint pain and other maladies and was instantly healed.   She simply could not contain her healing and jumped up and ran!

Sparks 10

However none of this matters if you do not see it for yourself.   We had to add three more meetings because of the demand.   Here is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for you to experience the power of God.  You will see that it is really, really possible that this is Reno’s time for something full of a power and hope that will transform this region.

Bring those you love who need a healing miracle.  Come for the greatest miracle of all to encounter Christ and know Him as Lord of all  DON’T EVEN THINK OF MISSING THESE 3 MEETINGS.

April 3 and 4 Sparks

 

 

COMPANIES AT WAR WITH THE CHURCH

TYRANNY BLOG copy

March 30th, 2016   By Mario Murillo

 

General Zod ordered them to activate the world engine.  Suddenly, downbursts of inconceivable power began squashing and pulverizing an entire city and its innocent citizens.   A wise scientist discerned what was happening—aliens are terraforming the earth.  Terraforming is a science fiction device that dates back to at least 1941.  Machines transform atmospheres so they can be colonized—essentially, absorbing an existing world in favor of a new matrix.

By now, many recognize this as a scene from the movie Man of Steel.  Last night wasn’t my first time to see the film.  Seeing it on television is not the same as a theater on a gigantic screen with deafening sound and a responsive audience.   It should have been an amusingly tepid affair—but for some reason—the terraforming scene disturbed me.  Now I know why.  It is because it is happening right now.

terraforming

Walt Disney Studios, American Airlines, Delta Airlines, Coca Cola, IBM, the NBA (to name a few) are and terraforming North Carolina and Georgia.  They are absorbing Christianity.  These corporations are pounding, pulverizing and eradicating an existing culture in favor of a new culture.

Their world engine says, “You will allow boys into the girl’s showers and bathrooms—you will not call homosexuality a sin from the pulpit—you are not allowed to operate a Christian adoption agency unless you place children in gay and lesbian homes—you will do this or we will blast your economy back to the stone age.”

If you believe their motivation is to advance equality and human rights…then you couldn’t sell bogus bonds to your mother.  It has nothing to do with rights.  It has nothing to do with equality.  It has everything to do with the world engine.

cared

If they cared about women’s rights and gay rights these corporations would stop doing business with Moslem countries where women are mutilated and gays are executed.  They would stop doing business with China because of gross human rights violations.   The world engine cannot say Islamic terror no matter how much blood flows.  It cannot call the mass extermination of Christians in the Middle East genocide.  Here is a headline that came out today:

Saudi government ‘wants to EXECUTE gay people who show their sexuality in public & online’

SAUDI law makers could impose the death penalty on gay people who show their sexuality in public and on social media, according to reports.  The government in the Sunni Kingdom is reportedly demanding tougher punishments on those found guilty and claimed social media has caused a boom in homosexuality.   According to Okaz newspaper, the last six months has seen 35 cases of homosexuality and 50 cases of cross-dressers as well as cases of “sexual perversion” in Saudi Arabia.

NONE OF THESE COMPANIES ARE TRYING TO PUNISH SAUDI ARABIA THE WAY THEY ARE PUNISHING GEORGIA AND NORTH CAROLINA

It is all about the world engine…a complicated device indeed.  This engine operates on a double standard.  Because of the World Engine, Mayor Ed Lee of San Francisco bans flights to North Carolina but does not ban murderers in San Francisco.   Kate Steinle was walking on a busy pier in San Francisco with her father when there was a single popping sound in the air. She fell to the ground, struck by a bullet, the victim of what police say appears to be a random killing. The man who fired the deadly shot—45-year-old Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez—an illegal alien, a repeat felon who has been deported five times to Mexico—but protected by S.F.’s sanctuary policy.

silence

The world engine is why you hear all about the horrors of Christianity and nothing about Islam.  Mosques face no economic threat from these corporations.   If this were about equality they would not be trampling freedom of speech and freedom of religion.  Even gay activist Milo Yiannopoulos is disgusted with the open persecution of Christians in the name of gay rights.

Since Moslems and illegal aliens vote democratic they are protected.  The world engine sees Christianity as the sole obstruction to its brave new world.  The world engine has decided that the one last unprotected and unrepresented group should be the Christians.  They are fair game for insults, illegal arrests search and seizure and financial tyranny.

What is the end game of the world engine?  To complete its terraforming, it must create a herd of low information—amoral—drug addicted—government dependent people.  To do so, the engine forms strange alliances.   Feminists and Moslems—Seeker pastors and atheists—greedy corporations and socialists—all natural enemies gleefully work together.  They are united by hate not by love.

What the companies are doing to Georgia and North Carolina is not human kindness but a cold cynical marketing scheme.  Right now hurting Christians sells.   If enough people felt strongly about the oppression of devil worshipers, we would have Satan day at Disneyland.  Why do politicians cave to anti-God policies?  Because opposing churches gets you reelected.   Why do seeker pastors refuse to stand with their brothers for righteousness?  Because by looking anti-biblical, anti-judgmental gets you a crowd.

The behavior of these corporations is not just illegal it is felony extortion and intimidation…they have called the church out.  They have declared war on us.  They are testing the early version of the mark of the beast.   Here is the most important thing to know: When you are in a war–you must know you are in a war–prepare like you are in a war and fight like you are in a war.

engine

This world engine can be a very easy excuse for a fearful church.  But we must not violate scripture and fashion a doctrine in order to justify our fear.  Certainly things are going to “wax worse and worse” but Jesus forever sealed the issue in Matthew 24:14 when He declared a worldwide impact of His Gospel before the world would be allowed to end.

In a segment of the church today it is fashionable to want revival.  It is “in” to talk revival talk.  Satan has not wished to bury revival talk but, rather, he wants to congratulate us for only saying we want it. He is amused by our pompous symbolic effort to bring revival.  The devil delights in the fact of our pride.  We are so pleased with our awareness of the needs for revival that it seems enough to just want it.

There is a young crop of Christians that is entirely different from swooning saints.  I told you in a recent letter that the youth will bring a Lion Revival!  These young Christians ask disturbing questions about why we always seem to want something that we never deliberately try to get.  If the church is not careful, we may be passed over in favor of this new breed of believers who don’t have our religious childhood diseases.

announce

II Chronicles 7:14 says, “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”   That is a promise that we have all heard and believed, but probably never realized its true significance.  A promise and instructions are embedded in that verse that will remove Satan’s vile talons from the throat of our nation.

The eyes of the Lord see everything but they focus on what is going on with His people.  Let us come before Him now, aware of our total helplessness.  Let us announce that we are His people and that we do not fear our time, but we fear the Lord, and we have come to stand before His presence on behalf of a new demonstration of His glory on earth.  Then we will see the barriers removed and the long-awaited revival explode!

THE QUEST FOR THE PERFECT CANDIDATE

The quest for the perfect candidate

By Mario Murillo

Christians who are ardent supporters of Ted Cruz or Donald Trump have ended friendships with fellow believers—even lifelong friends.   The damage of lost fellowship will go on long after this election is over.  The goal of Satan is to divide and conquer (more on this in a moment).

The world will not end if Cruz becomes president.  The world will not end if Trump becomes president.  Hillary is the apocalypse.   She is the true end of all things because she promises to continue Obama’s legacy.  How insane is that?!

Consider these facts:

There is no perfect candidate.  All of them are flawed.  Both of the candidates have done—or allowed—things that are reprehensible.  There is nothing close to a Ronald Reagan in this race.

We are not electing a pastor.   There is truth in that statement.  But we are electing a president and moral conviction should matter.  On the other hand—we should remember—we can’t even find a perfect pastor!

I get it!  We need as godly a president as possible…but we also need a leader.   If we get an ideologue—who can debate Christianity and conservatism—but who is powerless to make changes… what is the point?  On the other hand, if we get a celebrity—who can make deals—but has a broken moral compass…how does that help?  It’s a big fat mess…but there is hope.

I have two mighty, wise and famous Christian friends.  One can convince you that your only choice is Cruz and make it seem that you have committed the unpardonable sin by uttering the word “Trump.”

The other spiritual legend can show you how it is the prophetic destiny of America to have Trump as president.   I do not agree with either of them.   I believe that we can work with either one if we pray and obey.

Not only this, but the enemy wants you to be so angry about who gets the Republican nomination that you will sit out the general election.

Glenn Beck hates Trump so much that he has vowed to vote for Hillary if Trump is the nominee.  That is wacko!   Rush Limbaugh agrees that is wacko: “I’m not voting for Hillary.  If Trump’s the nominee I’m voting for him.  I’m gonna vote for anybody but Hillary Clinton.  I’m not voting for her no matter what.  Daffy Duck could be our nominee.  He gets my vote.  I am not voting for Hillary or Bernie or Biden or whoever ends up being the nominee, pure and simple.  The Democrat Party is the most destructive force; the American left the most destructive force in this country today.”

 

The idea of running a third party candidate is also loony and will guarantee a Clinton victory.

Rick Perry isn’t seeking re-election but is considering a second run for the White House and is expected to attend. Also planning to be there, according to spokeswoman Catherine Frazier, is tea party-backed Sen. Ted Cruz, who appears likely to test the presidential waters. Same goes for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, a possible 2016er some Republicans hope will enter the race to stand up to conservative firebrands like Cruz. (AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta, File)

Ted and Donald carry baggage that is disconcerting to me…but when you consider whom they are replacing—the worst leader we have ever known—you can see how Cruz or Trump is a massive improvement.    Not only this, but If you combed our entire galaxy it would be nigh unto impossible to find a more incompetent or despicable leader than Barack.  Yet, somehow, the Democrats have managed to do just that in Hillary.

By all means debate your cause.  Defend your candidate.  Vote with both heart and brain!  Let’s just dial down the vitriol, the anger, and self-righteous vindictive rhetoric.  We have a flawed election, two flawed candidates heading into a flawed election.  It is what it is, and we must be wise.  It doesn’t help when believers say, “you are not a Christian if you vote for Trump.”  And no believer should be saying “you are an idiot to vote for Cruz.”  No friendship should end over Trump or Cruz.

Whoever is nominated will need to be rehabilitated and transformed into a viable opponent to Hillary Clinton.  Prayer, unity and bringing righteous pressure to bear on that nominee will be our best course of action.  And yet I show you a more excellent way…

The answer to America will not come out of the White House but out of God’s house.  It is Lucifer’s intention to divide and conquer.  Satan understands that revival is the only thing that will stop him.  He has created the perfect storm to get us at each other’s throat instead of his throat.

His goal is to get us to make the same mistake the disciples made with Jesus.  They tried to make Jesus a temporal king and establish a theocracy…looking to a politician to save us.   Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world.”   Those who would attempt to create a theocratic state are misguided and anti-Bible.

America’s hope lies in an outpouring of the Holy Spirit where the preaching is confirmed with signs and wonders.   We need widespread conviction—people openly sobbing over their sin and violently turning to Christ.

We need what the forest fire fighters call Area Ignition: when separate forest fires burn toward each other and finally form a regional wall of fire where the air gets so hot it ignites flames.  We need a reformation led not by supermen but supernatural men and women!

Robert Jeffress Rebukes Glenn Beck for Criticism of Southern Evangelicals

Robert Jeffress Rebukes Glenn Beck for Criticism of Southern Evangelicals

Robert Jeffress, pastor of the 12,000 member First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, is rebuking talk radio host Glenn Beck for his recent criticism of evangelical Christians who live in the South and are not supporting Ted Cruz’s Campaign to secure the Republican Presidential nomination.

by MICHAEL PATRICK LEAHY  23 Mar 2016

“All throughout the South the Evangelicals are not listening to their God,” Beck said at a rally in Utah on Monday.

“Beck’s wacko comment speaks for itself,” Jeffress tells Breitbart News.

“However, by using the phrase ‘their God’ to refer to the God we evangelical Christians worship, Beck is finally admitting that the true God of the Bible is different than the god of the Book of Mormon. I congratulate Beck for his honesty in differentiating between the two,” Jeffress adds.

“However, I am somewhat puzzled that Beck claims to know how the God Christians worship would vote in the Republican primaries.”

Jeffress has introduced GOP frontrunner Donald Trump at many events, though as a pastor he is not officially endorsing any candidate.

Beck, a Mormon, has endorsed Cruz and has spoken on his behalf at numerous rallies around the country.

One prominent academic who specializes in American religion takes exception to Beck’s comments as well.

“Assuming that Mr. Beck is referring to evangelicals who vote for Trump, I would make a distinction that Beck does not: The Bible certainly offers principles on how to think about government and politics. The Bible does not, however, tell us which individual candidates to vote for,” Dr. Thomas S. Kidd, Distinguished Professor of History and Associate Director of the Institute for Studies of Religion at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, tells Breitbart News.

Glenn Beck

“If other Christians don’t vote for our preferred candidate, we should not say that they are not listening to God. None of us has special access to God’s opinions about candidates,” Kidd says.

“There are many reasons why devout Christians should hesitate to vote for Donald Trump, but God has not revealed Ted Cruz as the divinely anointed alternative, either,” Kidd concludes.

A number of evangelical Christians who live in the South are also critical of Beck’s fusion of theology and politics.

“Say what you want, but as a Southern Christian, I’m pretty sure my God doesn’t like politicians behaving like diamond pinky ring wearing TV preachers telling lies and trying to guilt people into donating their dollars to false causes,” Stephani Scruggs, a resident of Pensacola, Florida, posted on her Facebook page Tuesday. Scruggs says she is the former national co-chairman of the Glenn Beck inspired 9-12 Project

Criticisms of Beck’s attack on evangelical Christians who live in the South and are not supporting Cruz were echoed by several participants in the February 25 Breitbart focus groups conducted of evangelical Christians in Tennessee who said they intended to vote in the March 1 GOP Presidential primary in the Volunteer State.

“It has been very disconcerting to see Beck traveling with Cruz,” Elizabeth, who voted for Cruz in the Tennessee primary and participated in one of the February 25 focus groups, tells Breitbart News.

“I have had a nagging concern about Cruz’s integrity. His association with Beck confirms this,” she says.

Robert Jeffress

“Beck is not reticent about pushing his Mormon faith, which from an evangelical perspective is heretical. Apparently Cruz has no discomfort being called the fulfillment of a false prophecy,” she adds.

“The fact that evangelicals have not fully embraced Cruz but Mormons have is troubling to someone who voted for Cruz but now questions the decision,” Elizabeth concludes.

“I am disgusted by Beck’s comments and he should be ashamed for casting stones,” Jim, a Trump supporter and small business owner who participated in the focus groups, tells Breitbart News.

“Are we counting sins? Let’s see: Cruz has lied on multiple occasions, smeared Trump horribly, wasn’t tithing while making over $250,000,” he adds.

“I tuned Glenn Beck out a long time ago,” Martha, a Trump alternate delegate and focus group participant, tells Breitbart News. (Note: Two other participants in the focus groups ran as Cruz delegates in Tennessee.)

“I think he has issues and is in no position to determine who is or is not listening to anything or anyone, including God,” she adds.

“His hysterics do nothing but turn me off, whether it’s this or anything else,” she says of Beck.

“I think he has done some good exposing some of those leftist relationships that he has exposed. But, once he starts on opinion, he always seems totally off the wall to me. Have thought this a long time,” Martha concludes.

“I was offended by Glenn Beck’s comments, as I was by Romney’s speech several weeks ago. ‘My God’ doesn’t tell me how to vote,” Aime Molina, another focus group participant, tells Breitbart News.

“I believe God expects me to be involved in the political process for the good of His people and the advancement of His Kingdom,” Molina continues.

“I believe I am called to vote according to the morals and teachings of Jesus. I believe we should vote for the candidate who will enforce the expectations of personal accountability for one’s life and actions, and the protection of our Country and its citizens,” she continues.

“I don’t believe that God endorses a specific candidate, and Beck’s comments seem judgmental and manipulative to me. I am not anti-Trump; he is my second choice, but for the record I voted for Ted Cruz. And I’m still offended by Glenn Beck,” Molina adds.

The February 25 Breitbart focus groups of evangelical Christians in Tennessee confirmed the polling research of the Barna Group, the leading pollster of evangelical Christians,which found that committed evangelicals are more supportive of Cruz and cultural evangelicals are more supportive of Trump.

LIVING PROOF WEST COAST

West Coast Living Proof Tour copy

It all begins this Sunday night at Bethel Church in Redding.  Our goal is to interrupt the tragedy.  Our mission is to apply the weapons of our warfare—which are not carnal weapons but mighty to tear down strongholds.  Our passion is to have meetings that are unfettered by human agendas, gimmicks and half-cures.

We are an unapologetic force of the love and power of Jesus.  We will pour out every benefit that Jesus won on the Cross—we will spread the cure where the need is greatest. 

I want you to join me for unforgettable nights of hope and power.

Jesus himself said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father”-John 14:12.   Those words haunted me and challenged me to answer one of the greatest questions I would ever ask myself:  How do I reach the West Coast in this toxic atmosphere?

I am not asking them to embrace dead religion or a cult.  Reality does not need hype or manipulation.  I am asking you to trade a night of your life to open your heart to God… and let Him use you to give a miracle to someone who would not normally go to a Christian gathering.

Why you should bring someone to these nights: If someone you love is suffering physical illness, bring them and let us pray for them to receive a miracle.  Think of all that they have endured to try to get well.  Instead of waiting for hours in a cold atmosphere let them experience a loving, joyous, faith-filled atmosphere. 

If someone you know is unchurched and is honestly seeking to know that God is real, bring them.  My message these nights will not just touch the needs of the body but also of the soul.  This is a perfect opportunity for them to receive a miracle in their soul.

The impact of these nights does not end with just healing miracles.  An army of love and light is forming from many churches in the area who are seeking an outpouring of the Holy Spirit.  It is our deepest wish and expectation that the power of these nights will flow out to the entire West Coast.

It all adds up to a simple conclusion:  These are nights you do not want to miss.

AMERICA, IT’S NOW OR NEVER

warns

 

The Holy Spirit warns,”America, It’s now or never.

By Mario Murillo

 

Sin is one thing…but sin that is designed to provoke God is quite another.  Our leaders are now shaking their fist at God.  Our decadence is now a frenzied decadence.  At home and abroad our elected officials are hard selling immorality and false Gods.  The left is using Hollywood and the media to punish the righteous.   We have taunted God to the point that we are now seeing the result in our daily life.

The Holy Spirit–through many vessels is declaring a dire warning: “America, it’s now or never!”

Bloomberg news made this chilling statement today: “No President can save the American Economy.”    Hillary Clinton said yesterday that the leaders of the world are sternly warning America who not to vote for in our presidential election.  Universities and the media are siding with rioters and looters against the police causing a spike in crime, the lowest morale among cops in our history, and—worst of all—an end to free speech.  78% of all Americans are using or abusing prescription drugs making us the most addicted Americans in history.  No living American has seen our nation in such a terrible conditionBut that fact is but the tip of the iceberg.

America has been beaten into submission.  We are now—in the eyes of the world—a client state that must fall into line.  Until now, no nation would dare to intimidate our elections.   Billionaire George Soros openly announces he will finance demonstrations and riots.   Until now, no one could do that without being prosecuted.  Our drug addled state makes us easy prey for mass manipulation and foreign invasion.  Until now, no country in a pandemic of drugs would decriminalize even more drugs.  If America was a patient, the doctor would deliver a terrifying tale of multiple terminal conditions.   The only question left: which disease will deliver the fatal blow?  Is there any hope left for America?

IT IS NOW OR NEVER FOR AMERICA: embracing the reality of that statement is our major hope.  Whatever we are going to do—we must do now.  Don’t delude yourself into thinking we have more time.   You deceive yourself at your own peril.    Those who handle warnings carelessly, will almost certainly be fatalities in the maelstrom.

In the midst of these great horrors we are still a divided church.  This is the most jaw dropping fact of all: U.S. Christians refuse to unify.   Everything is at stake—how is this possible?  What decadent arrogance allows Christian leaders to keep building empires?  Why do they steadfastly refuse to join their brothers and sisters in the struggle to save the nation?   How can they ignore the deafening air raid siren?  What will they do if the church is driven underground and their little kingdoms are gone in an instant?

GOD SEEKS A CORE.  What has happened to America and the church is dreadful.   But just as dreadful as these things are that is how wonderful it is to know that all God needs is a core.   1 Samuel 14: 6 says, “Then Jonathan said to the young man who bore his armor, “Come, let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised; it may be that the Lord will work for us. For nothing restrains the Lord from saving by many or by few.”

Martin Luther said, “One with God is a majority.”  Gideon proved this.  When all of Israel was dulled by immorality, and failed to rally to the cause, God honed 300 men to save the nation.  God seeks a core that will not hold back in prayer, action and sacrifice.  He seeks you.

You and I can’t wait for the church to wake up.  No pastor should stall revival in committee.  No soldier of Jesus should look for the right amount of support or a consensus.  There is nothing—and no one to wait for.

The Bible and Church history have taught one undeniable fact:  One person full of fire will ignite a generation to watch them burn.   Satan has made a mistake and we must make him pay for that mistake.   Satan plunged America so quickly and forcefully into dark perversion that he has nauseated them with wickedness.

The anger you see in the election is not political…it is rooted in their spirits.  They are sick to death of the lies of our culture.  They feel outrage at the betrayal of our leaders.  If we seize this moment—if we go full bore—if we abandon ourselves to outreach—we will see the greatest harvest in 40 years.

However, this door will close and this priceless moment will pass into the night where no man can work.  Since it is now or never…whatever we are going to do for Christ in America must be done now.  I place before you—my beloved partner—a do or die situation and I am praying with all of my heart that you will heed the urgent call of God in what I know will be our finest hour.

Ted Cruz: Closet Pentecostal

Why is Ted Cruz hiding his Pentecostal past…

By Jacob Engels

While Ted Cruz proudly proclaims he is an Evangelical Christian, his campaign takes pains to hide the truth that Cruz and his pastor father, Rafael Cruz are Pentecostal Christians, a fact further hidden by having Ted and Heidi Cruz’s belong to the congregation of First Baptist Church, a Southern Baptist church in Houston, as their home church.

Both Cruz’s parents, his father Rafael a Cuban-born immigrant, and his mother Eleanor, born in Wilmington, Delaware, grew up in Catholic families. Both were among the millions of that left the Catholic Church since the 1960s to embrace Pentecostalism, a Christian movement estimated to make up 4.4 percent of the U.S. population, accounting for some 13 percent of evangelical churches in the United States.

Holy Spirit’s “Purifying Fire”

The name “Pentecostal” derives from the feast of the Pentecost, typically celebrated fifty days after Easter, and identified in the Acts of the Apostles 2:1-31 as the day when the Holy Spirit descended in “purifying fire” upon the Apostles of Jesus Christ, inspiring them to go forth from hiding in fear to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Pentecostals believe the Apostles of Jesus were aided by the Holy Spirit’s “gift of tongues,” in what Pentecostals consider as “baptism by the Holy Spirit,” deriving from 1 Corinthians 12:14, that gave the Apostles the ability to speak in a “God-enabled prayer language” that Pentecostals believe even today allows the unintelligible human utterances of an Pentecostal evangelist to be understood by foreigners who do not speak the Pentecostal evangelist’s language.

Heidi Nelson Cruz, Ted’s wife, is the daughter of Seventh-day Adventist missionaries, explaining why she spent part of her childhood traveling with her parents to places like Kenya. “Speaking in Tongues” Religion reporter Sarah Pulliam Bailey, writing in the Washington Post on March 25, 2015, was of the first to recognize Ted Cruz’s 2016 presidential campaign logo and the purifying tongue-of-fire logo used commonly to identify Pentecostal churches.

Here is Ted Cruz’s 2016 presidential campaign logo:

 

Here is the logo of the Church of Pentecost:

 

The symbol derives from Acts 2:3, writing about the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles, “They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.”

Sarah Palin’s nomination as vice president put Pentecostalism into the spotlight, when the press revealed that from the time she was a teenager until 2002, Palin attended a church affiliated with the Assemblies of God that the Pew Research Center in an analysis published on Sept. 12, 2008, described as “the largest Pentecostal Christian denomination in the U.S.”

The Pew Research Center went on to note that Pentecostalism “emphasizes such practices as speaking in tongues, prophesying, divine healing and other miraculous signs of the Holy Spirit, which it believes are as valid today as they were in the early Christian church.”

“Ted is the anointed one”

Rafael Cruz is a pastor with Purifying Fire International Ministry, although in January 2014, as Ted Cruz was preparing his presidential swing, Rafael Cruz scrapped the group’s website after various blogs began identifying the ministry as rooted in “a radical Christian ideology known as Dominionism or Christian Reconstructionism.”

Dominionism calls on anointed Christian leaders to take over government to make the laws of the nation in accordance with Biblical laws. Rafael Cruz, at the Pastor Larry Huch’s New Beginnings mega-church in Bedford Texas, outside Dallas, on Aug. 26, 2012, in a Dominionist sermon proclaimed his son, Ted Cruz, to be the “anointed one,” a Dominionist Messiah who would bring God’s law to reign.

 

At a Dominionist pastor’s meeting held at the Marriott Hotel in Des Moines, Iowa, on July 19 and 20, 2013, the following “anointing prayer” was read over.

So to pull all this logic together, God anoints priests to work in the church directly and kings to go out into the marketplace to conquer, plunder, and bring back the spoils to the church. The reason governmental regulation has to disappear from the marketplace is to make it completely available to the plunder of Christian “kings” who will accomplish the “end time transfer of wealth.”

Then “God’s bankers” will usher in the “coming of the messiah.”

The government is being shut down so that God’s bankers can bring Jesus back. In an editorial published in the Washington Post on Feb. 4, on the heels of Cruz’s victory in the Iowa GOP primary, John Fea of the Religion News Service published an op-ed piece noting the frequent references Ted Cruz makes in stump speeches to his father “the traveling evangelist” Rafael Cruz.

“During a 2012 sermon at the New Beginnings Church in Bedford, Texas, Rafael Cruz described his son’s political campaign as a direct fulfillment of biblical prophecy,” Fea wrote. “The elder Cruz told the congregation God would anoint Christian ‘kings’ to preside over an ‘end-time transfer of wealth’ from the wicked to the righteous. After this sermon, Larry Huch, the pastor of New Beginnings, claimed Cruz’s recent election to the U.S. Senate was a sign he was one of these kings.”

Fea noted that Rafael Cruz and Larry Huch preach a brand of evangelical theology known as Seven Mountains Dominionism. The name comes from Isaiah 2:2, “Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the Lord’s house shall be established on top of the mountains.”

Fea commented that Rafael Cruz believes Christians must take dominion over seven aspects of culture: family, religion, education, media, entertainment, business, and government.

By identifying Ted Cruz as the “anointed one,” Rafael Cruz has designated his son as what he believes is God’s choice to lead an evangelical coup d’etat, such that, as Fea notes, “Cruz’s campaign may be less about the White House and more about the white horses that will usher in the God’s Kingdom in the New Testament book of Revelation, Chapter 19.”
